An Open Letter to Liberals and Centrists — evolutionistx

I highly recommend reading this very interesting article about voting patterns and demographics! It is not too long and it is well-written. Check it out!

Welcome. Come in, take a seat. Would you like some tea? Don’t worry, we aren’t even evil–though you might not want to tell your friends you’ve been here. They might not understand. In light of the recent election craziness, it’s time for a serious discussion. First, some basic facts: Here’s some poll data on the […]

Migrants Aim For Norway Via Arctic Route Along Russia-Border….

With all of this focus on the Southern and South-Eastern borders in Europe, it is remarkable that border crossings in the North are completely left out of the picture.

I had no idea that people travel via Russia to get asylum in Norway. I have to admit that this was completely new to me.

Good to see that the country is protected.

Norway’s Arctic Border Problem.

It is of interest that population groups that are non-European are doing everything in their power to get into this continent, whether by improvised “boats” on the Mediterranean or by walking in the arctic…

Are Western territories really the only territories on this planet worth living in? You would certainly think so when reading about this massive influx of asylum seekers pouring in all over the “continent.”

Norway’s geography apparently makes it hard to besiege, yet there’s been so much writing about lack of personnel and funding when it comes to our defence, that you would think that the end is nigh.

I guess all Norway needs is more involvement and then we are probably sorted. The nature and terrain itself is violent; which is what these articles describe in part…

Some Norwegian politicians want the border closed down immediately, the prime minister states that it is not that easy.

 

“The Gospel of Thomas” translated by Svein Woje & Kari Klepp.

A “new-age” relative of mine was very eager to lend me this non-canonical gospel, once she figured out that I was reading The Holy Bible.

After having read “The Gender Agenda” by Lis Goddard & Clare Hendry., I decided to take a look at it before publishing my Old Testament review.

If you are going to write about religious texts you should preferably know what you are talking about since religion is so vital to those who believe and can be potentially life-changing for those who discover the power of it.

Yet in today’s political and cultural environment you can easily find yourself confused, which is probably the point. This morning I read a very good interview with Bishop Rachel, the 1st female bishop in the church of England, and even though the interview was very good, I couldn’t help but wonder about the presence of women in such high positions. This has nothing to do with my personal preferences; it has everything to do with the Bible texts themselves. Before you know it I’ll re-read the entire Bible just to double-check, since modern church practises clashes so monumentality with what the Bible is explicitly saying. Of course it will make you wonder what you’ve potentially missed. Yet when I re-opened my Bible while reading The Gender Agenda, my impression of what the Bible actually states, was not changed.

It would probably be better for people who fundamentally disagree with Christianity to find some other outlet for their spirituality rather than trying to change the Christian faith to fit with their own preferences….

I do posses a gigantic book about the history of Christianity, which I will certainly read soon I believe. I have too many questions, and a lot of times you can find what you are looking for by going back into the past…

“The Gospel of Thomas” has its relevancy in a very popular conspiracy, where it is claimed that women were especially targeted by the Christian church in the name of oppression. I have debunked parts of that myth as old pre-Christian mythology/spiritual practises do not come across as particularly egalitarian.

Yet it seems like there are forces so desperate to establish a certain new-ideology and/or political order, that history has to be re-written, especially anything that has to do with religious practices. In that spirit I recommend reading this: Ancient Greek Myths – The Universe, The Gods, And Mortals told by Jean-Pierre Vernant.

I guess the reason as to why my “new-age/spiritualist” relative was so very eager to lend me “The Gospel of Thomas” is that it undermines the very structures of the Church and can therefore be seen as a good document for subversion.

She also appears to have some big problems with the Church herself, due to her own fixation on gay’s rights. Last time we visited her she proclaimed that the greatest perpetrators in history have been “white Christian men.”

On that note I’ll zoom in on the gospel itself…

The story goes that this gospel among others was cut out of The New Testament to cover up the social egalitarianism in the early churches and throw women under the bus in order to establish the “evil-Christian-patriarchy.” The non-canonical gospels were excluded in order to hijack Jesus and keep the real-truth from the world, such as Mary Magdalene being his favourite disciple.

The foreword/preface to this translated edition is repetitive but very informative and good. It creates a great built up, addressing the controversy surrounding this non-canonical text, but it all falls flat when you finally get to the actual gospel.

To call it a dethronement of Jesus would be laughable, as you’ll feel like you’ve just read the words of a fortune-cookie-prophet reminiscent of Jaden Smith.

It is all in all a pretty bland text, so I sincerely hope that this is indeed “ancient-fake-news.”

If they do reflect the truth they are evidence of the greatest fraud in history, where an average prophet or cult leader, had some of his quotes inserted into an epic fantasy story, creating division and controversy in the Jewish world and eventually re-setting the spirituality meter all across Europe…

Considering the enormous personal sacrifice and hardships that his disciples put themselves under though, I sincerely doubt that. There is a thread that can be followed, historically speaking, and this in combination with the quality of the writing in The New Testament refutes the “conspiracy.”

It is of great importance to address it though, because this is what critics of the Christian faith will hold on to and bring up in order to debunk and ridicule the faith.

In “The Gospel of Thomas” Jesus speaks of duality coming to an end with “women becoming men, while men become women, so that all can become one” to paraphrase.

Jesus will lead Mary Magdalene “to turn her into a man, so that she can become a living spirit, that is like the spirit of men, for any woman who makes herself a man shall be allowed entry into the Kingdom of Heaven.

“The Gospel of Thomas” is a quick read and is not the bombshell that people will have you believe. The text itself is mediocre at best, but it is still worth a read, so that you know what “the haters” are going on about!

A Brilliant Article Worth Reading.

This is an open letter written to the French President. It is very good and delivers some stellar points. I would highly recommend reading it.

“It would appear that American nationalists have historically cared more about your country than you do.”

As a side-note it is worth mentioning that the centralisation seen in Norway, just to pick an example, function as a way to erase Norwegian identity. I’ve spoken about it with my brother before, and my mother actually just brought it up as well. If you want to know a territory and a people it is worth going out into the country since major cities won’t tell you much.

When you then wage “war” against the districts, turning villages and hamlets into desolate “ghost towns,” you’ll force everyone to cluster in the major cities and towns, which means that charming architecture, dialects, quirky habits and traditions all go down the toilet.

As I’ve mentioned before on this blog of mine; my dad complained to me last year that “everything looks the same now in Europe.” He lamented how London used to have so much character and how Europe’s capitals now all look increasingly “streamlined.” It would appear that this call for “diversity” doesn’t include those of us who are native to these territories and as I’ve also mentioned before it doesn’t really include anyone else’s true identity either, since shock ensues whenever the mainstream media (or anyone else) reports that mass importing people from Africa and the Middle East doesn’t just include getting fancy-dress and spicy food…..

 

 

“The Gender Agenda” by Lis Goddard & Clare Hendry.

This book came into my possession courtesy of our local vicar, who lent it to me after having read my review of “Simply Christian” by Tom Wright.

The work is a discussion between two Christian women regarding female leadership and involvement in the Church.

I can hardly think of a topic more relevant in this day and age where female priests seem to be the only vicars left, in addition to female bishops, even female lesbian bishops!

With the emphasis on LGBTQ and egalitarianism it is certainly surprising to read the actual Holy Bible and see how the texts contrast with our “modern values. ”

In my review of “Simply Christian” I wrote among other things this:

“I’m also questioning the presence of female priests and authority figures within Northern European churches when it is explicitly said in 1 Timothy 2 (12) : “I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.” I guess it can be counter-argued that women are keeping the faith alive and that it is better with female priests than no priests.”

That is probably a good place to start, because the Holy Bible does certainly not come across as a feminist manifesto, to put it that way, even though Lis Goddard seems to think so.

Her interpretation of The Holy Bible hinges on our Bibles being translated wrong … which means that both my copy of the Bible and Clare Hendry’s copy are faulty.

Lis Goddard zooms in on what could have been the intended or original meaning of certain words in the texts and she also seem to believe that Genesis depicts a gender-neutral Utopia of sorts, before the Fall….

Eve is created from Adam’s rib and God first turns to Adam when Eve has not only been disobedient but has brought her man into disobedience as well. A great deal of people will read this as follows: God created the man first, gave him a companion “of him,” and was upset with Adam when he failed in his leadership, punishing both parties (even the snake).

Lis Goddard and those who agree with her, would claim that there was no such thing as any leadership to begin with. That Adam and Eve were equals, that both were leaders in their own right, but that the Fall distorted this Utopia leading to gender-unbalance, which was finally corrected with the arrival of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom.

My impression after reading “The Gender Agenda” is that joining a Bible reading group might put you into a situation where after staring at certain passages in the Bible for a prolonged period of time, you’ll start seeing all sorts of strange things…Everything that is all of a sudden isn’t and everything that isn’t is.

In other words: if you analyse something long enough you’ll eventually get whatever you desire, seeing your own reflection after turning what you are reading into a mirror.

The same can be observed in a lot of modern journalism.

I’m not saying this to be rude, but the book certainly gives off this vibe and as I result I opened up my Bible again to read Genesis to see what I had missed.

The passage that Goddard and Hendry constantly fall back on doesn’t even occupy a full-page. It is a remarkably short section spanning from Genesis 2 (18)  up until the Fall in Genesis 3. After reading this section again, a couple of times, I find it difficult to agree with Goddard’s interpretation.

A good point made by Hendry is that if a woman is supposed to listen to her husband, and he is the head of the household, then how does that work out if a woman is to be the head of a Church? This might be the reason as to why there were supposed to be male monarchs back in the day. Will a female Queen be “King enough”? Or will she be swayed by her husband as “the head,” in effect meaning that the man is ruling the territory rather than the actual Queen?

Yet with all of this said; it is written in the Bible that women should study, prophesy, and pray, not to forget that there are important female characters present in the Biblical texts which is something that anti-Christian critics wouldn’t acknowledge or downplay. Women are to have a role and be active, the question is how.

An interesting point made in “The Gender Agenda” is that Paul was writing to different Churches, helping them with whatever issues that they were facing. It was also mentioned that women and men were probably seated according to their gender, just like in the synagogues, which can explain why Paul says that women need to be quiet in Church. No gossiping and chit-chat in other words. Here is an interesting quote from 1 Corinthians 9 (22):

“To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”

That quote might shed some light on Paul’s letters. It is also of interest to note that disagreements was a factor from the very beginning of the establishment of the various Churches:

“I appeal to you brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree and that there be no dissensions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgement. For it has been reported to me by Chloe’e’s people that there is quarrelling among you, my brethren.” 1 Corinthians 1 (10)

I would recommend reading Goddard & Hendry’s book as it is extremely relevant in today’s Church environment. If you’ve attended any Church services in Scandinavia or the U.K., then you’ll know what I mean.

Reading the Old & New Testament will instantly put you in a situation where you’ll be worried that you’re supporting heresy, which is probably why young people turn to Islam or Orthodox Christianity.

Pluralism and political correctness is hurting Northern churches, who would probably gain more by proclaiming God as the God and the Holy Bible as the Truth. If you start doubting yourself, then others will do as well and in today’s political and spiritual environment, I don’t know if that’s the best way forward.

To conclude; it is certainly at odds with everything in our modern pop-culture to be a practising Christian, especially if you are a woman, since being: argumentative, loud, not modestly dressed and especially having authority over men are all characteristics that are currently being celebrated, in addition to abortion. Nothing gains wider praise than women involved with the military, ministry or politics. So if you are looking at the Bible and Christianity through a conservative lens you’ll probably think that you’ve woken up in Hell, or at least in a world that is in a state of absolute chaos.

Snapshots of the current Narrative.

As usual I’ve written notes of what I ought to blog about since there is a lot to pick from.

That being said I’m currently staring at three articles, whose presence in my tabs are starting to annoy me since I haven’t really gotten around to writing what I was planning.

So even though this isn’t the intended context … well here we go:

This ad was deemed racist by news outlets and social media platforms alike. I’m not quite sure why it is racist to enforce and protect ones border, nor do I understand why it is “mean” to point out issues with imported criminals. As I’ve written about before: I performed in a couple of prisons over in Norway in 2014, and I was told to speak English when addressing the prisoners since so many of them were foreigners. The political opinion circus grows old at one point or the other. What’s annoying is that even if you lose interest, decisions taken by others still impact you and your family and what you do…

The synagogue shooting in America was sad for sure, but this article is full of inaccuracies to such an extent that it was painful to read it. I now struggle with reading “the news.” I was contemplating pointing out the inaccuracies, but I do believe that this is something that I’ve done on other occasions with other articles on this blog, and an activity such as that can become uninteresting at a certain point. I do believe in Truth. Which is probably why I shouldn’t read “the news.”

In this article about the UK recruiting foreigners with no ties to this country into their military, (not as part of separate units, but as part of the main body), it is claimed that Britons don’t want to fight anymore. I think I’ve mentioned elsewhere on this blog that you might get a bit of a recruitment crisis if you are engaged in all sorts of strange abstract operations abroad, maybe not with those who just want to fight for the sake of fighting, but surely among those who are patriots and want to fight to defend their country specifically. The claim of the article is therefore false. Just because a specific political establishment struggle to recruit people for their military campaigns, doesn’t mean that there is an unwillingness to fight for an actual Nation and/or a home-territory. Something that has been largely left out of our “news” is the fact that young men travelled over to Ukraine to voluntarily fight. A war that I have never mentioned on this blog at all. There are also Westerners who went down to Syria (I believe) just to get combat experience. New-Europeans have also joined their original Nations by voluntarily fighting for their ancestral in-group, which again means that there are plenty of people on this continent willing to fight in one way or another, whether they join our enemies or go private. Whether they protest their governments or go into a war zone voluntarily, showing up out of nowhere to sign up to fight for whatever cause.

Once again, I should probably avoid “the news.” There are enough books out there to read anyway and I personally don’t think that anything is more relevant than History. My brother is currently reading about pre-Nation-State Europe and that is surely an interesting topic to look into.

The organic nature of humanity is well reflected in what we build. Civilisations are born and nurtured before they rot and decompose. One political order arise only to eclipse another. A ruling class is built upon the ashes of the ruling order of the past. And on and on this cycle goes, perfectly described in Ecclesiastes: “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.”

Amen.

Why I Don’t Go To The Library…

This household is filled to the brim with books. Everyone is just as curious and everyone is a bit of a collector.

I myself have plenty of unread books such as: Shakespeare’s works, Viking texts, Norwegian classics, all sorts of other more modern works covering everything from the entertainment industry, to spirituality, history and whatnot. In addition there are piles of Magazines, newspapers, and little reminders to check out digital articles, recommended to me by others, or that I’ve stumbled into myself.

Add unto to this all of the other books that are around the house belonging to others, and you start looking at quite a lot of reading material.

I therefore found myself in a familiar situation when I earlier this year acquired a library card and brought with me a pile of books that remained largely unread……

The catch of course is that you’ll be billed once your books are overdue, and when you then pay the bill and re-new your “lease” you’ll only be billed again, and again, as you forget to read whatever it was that you were going to read in whatever pile stationed somewhere, wherever that was…

What I gathered from my reading about ancient England was that people sometimes created false charters to feign legitimacy to certain territory. Total tribalism was the norm before unification, which means that one excavation site cannot be held up as “national” evidence when it comes to customs and practises! People have been looking for clues regarding religious activity sometimes regarding “house placement” as an indicator of spiritual affairs.

There have been instances of tons of weapons being thrown into water and researches have been hypothesising that this had to deal with religious rituals, my gut feeling was that maybe this was an act of disarmament. Much like those who are lobbying for gun control in the U.S.A., and have successfully done so across Europe.

Ancestry worship of bones, turning into “Saint-worship” and tribes fighting among themselves for control over the English territory, all made for interesting reading, until I actually had to abort my mission and give the books back.

I never managed to finish the pile and was reminded once again of why I don’t go to the library.
